I am interested to know this aswell.

Also if I remove wadding, would that incur any harmful effects on the engine or catalytic convertor?

your not gonna loose any power wouldnt worry about that. if the pipes go off in the same direction on the back of the box and hangers are the same should be a straight swap over?

No the bending of pipes are different.
Box on 330i is thicker, and it will need modification to go on 320i.

so whats the difference between the 320i performance exhaust and the standard 320i exhaust is it the baffle layout or something has anyone removed the baffles would this cause it to run funny at idle
